"Moravec's music is performed splendidly by the BMOP and Rose, and once again the company has done the composer and the listening audience a great service in making such material physically available and in such fine form. As the orchestra inches ever closer to its 100th formal release—Moravec's is its ninety-seventh—there's no better time than the present to acknowledge the vital contribution Rose and the ensemble have made to the contemporary music landscape.”

... the recording offers a superb sampling of the composer's artistry and stylistic approach, especially when the material's delivered with so much enthusiasm by Rose, the BMOP, and the soloists.

Marc-André Hamelin, the Boston Modern Orchestra Project, and conductor Gil Rose give a dashing performance on this release (BMOP/sound), which also includes three other Tower concertos. Of those, “Red Maple,” for bassoon and strings, shows how delicate and imaginative Tower’s textural palette can be.
